make your own gift bags for christmas

It’s not long to go before Christmas -so here’s a quick and easy way to make your own gift bags for Christmas.

This recipe is quite economical -as you can get 1 bag out of a sheet of 12″x12″ paper.

You will have a decent size of paper left over (4inches), which you can always use to make a matching card.

What you will need to make your own gift bag

  • 1 piece of designer series paper -cut 8″ x 11″
  • Strong adhesive – I use Stampin’Up! Seal +
  • Paper trimmer
  • Scoring tool
  • Bonefolder
  • Matching ribbon (optional)

Let’s put this bag together

  • Score on the long side of your paper at the following: 1½”;5¼”, 6 3/4″ & 10½”
  • Score on the short side – 1½”
  • Burnish all the score lines with the paper turning into the inside of the bag
  • With the long scored piece at the bottom of the paper – cut the score lines up to the 1½” score line
  • There will be a narrow piece that’s rectangular in shape
  • Cut of the rectangle -but leave the 2 squares in place
  • Place your adhesive down the narrow strip
  • Flatten the bag with the strip of adhesive facing up
  • Adhere the wider piece of paper onto the narrow strip -matching the score lines
  • Now tuck in the square flaps and lastly adhere the last flap
  • You can now squeeze in the sides of the bag
  • Tie a ribbon around the top edge of the bag

You have now finished creating your own gift bag for Christmas!
